Since I wrote my last post about the new edition of The Photographer’s Guide to Yosemite I’ve had several people ask me whether the iPhone/iPad app will be updated as well. Sorry that I wasn’t clear about this: the app is already updated, and has been since it first came out last year. The new locations, information, and tips about digital photography went into the app first, and are now coming out in book form. It takes a lot longer to get a book to press than to make an app!
Not only does the app have all the information that’s in the new edition of the book, but it has functions that you can’t put into a book, like the ability to view only the best locations for a particular month and time of day. Of course many people prefer to hold a physical book in their hands, and I completely understand that. I’m sure some people will get both—the app for its convenience and portability, the book for more leisurely browsing. I’m completely okay with that.
